Music Learning Outcomes

Glorifying God through the gift of music.

As a music major, you will develop the skills of discrimination and sensitivity in listening, careful analysis in studying music, technical competence in performance, and expressiveness in interpretation while promoting abiding Christian values.

Three music major programs are offered:

  • Music major—for students who wish to pursue music careers or graduate study outside the realm of education. As a music major you may add a concentration in music performance, theory and composition, or church music.
  • Music education major (K-12) with choral or instrumental emphasis—for students who want to become certified to teach music at the elementary or secondary level.
  • Music production major — for students who wish to work in a variety of settings, including music studios, post-production studios, sound design studios, production houses, concert arenas, radio and television stations, audio/visual departments, and record labels.
  • Music and Worship major – for students who wish to serve with excellence from a Christian perspective in the ministry of local churches with a particular emphasis on worship planning and leadership.
